Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and visit a coastal fixture at Gateway National Recreation.

To see other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
